 Villains Secret Meeting ~ Carmelitas

We have yet to visit this neck of the woods, Fair Oaks, CA.

 We have been wanting to go to a Mexican Restaurant and it seems the cooler weather is a nice time to partake of heartier food. Parking lot to the right side of the restaurant.

 One big plus to this meeting is that we are celebrating the birthday of our very own Erik Urias. Please make sure to tell him to have a great day and let's make it a great party.

http://carmelitasrestaurant.com/

 We would like to recommend wearing your Steampunk outfits to these Wednesday events. It is our chance to educate the mundanes about our ways.

 Approximately every 2nd Wednesday of the Month, The League of Proper Villains will be holding a "Secret Meeting" at ...various pubs and restaurants in the greater Sacramento Area. This is the Villains chance to meet in a casual setting, enjoy each others company, dress in Steamy Fashion or not depending on what you feel like.

 Suggestions of pubs and restaurants are welcome. Help us find great local places that have good happy hour food and drink menus. Recommend a place so we can visit you in your neck of the woods.

 Men in Black ~ Villain Invasion of Old Sac Pub Crawl

 A message from the Dr. :

 Strange men wearing black suits and dark sunglasses have been seen ever since the first UFO sightings were reported in the 1940's. These mysterious persons would invade a town after a sighting and warn the locals to never talk about what they have witnessed, for fear of something awful happening to them. They all dress alike and are often perplexed by common items, examining them as if they have never seen them before. Are they government agents or aliens themselves? As Men in Black, we won't be threatening anyone but we may very well give the locals a start! So for this event we will all dress down to a black suite, white shirt and black tie (weapons and earpiece optional) It will be a pub crawl (weather permitting) in Old Sacramento starting at our usual hideout: The Other Office. This is going to make a great photo op and we'll really freak out the natives!

 This should be an easy thrift store costuming experience. Try to find the most plain black suit jacket you can along with black slacks and a solid narrow black tie. MIB sunglasses will top off the look, leaving most of us looking practically identical. It may be best if the weapons stay behind during the pub crawl.

 Villains Secret Meeting ~ Shanghai Garden

800 Alhambra Blvd Sacramento, CA 95816

                Villains Secret Meeting

 This is Rose Teathyme,

 Once again the Villains have neglected to partake of a particular type of restaurant setting, Chinese.

 So to satisfy ourselves with other culinary choices we have decided to venture to one of our admins, our very own Ice Mink's favorite locations for said fare. The Shanghai Garden.

 This will not be a "costumed" event. We do however encourage you to dress in your Steampunk finery. We have few actual Steampunk events so this allows us to rotate our various fashionable combinations and mildly intrigue the mundanes with our excellent attire.

 Approximately every 2nd Wednesday of the Month, The League of Proper Villains will be holding a "Secret Meeting" at various pubs and restaurants in the greater Sacramento Area. This is the Villains chance to meet in a casual setting, enjoy each others company, dress in Steamy Fashion or not depending on what you feel like.

 Suggestions of pubs and restaurants are welcome. Help us find great local places that have good happy hour food and drink menus. We would like a chance to visit different locations, to make it easier for more of you to attend meetings.

 LOPV Presents ~ Virtual Villains

Dearest fellow Villains and minions,

 We're all familiar with the villains in the movies, but what about villains in video games? Unlike the movies, these villains often win. Great skills are required of the player to beat them. And often, many of the 'heroes' of these games end up killing more characters than the bad guys, so they're actually villains too! So let's become these villains and show the world we are 'virtually' unstoppable!

 This meet will be much more of a costuming challenge. Many of the villains (and there are lots of them) have outlandish costumes - Not something easily found on the rack or at thrift stores. Here is a site that has a top 100 list of video game villains: http://www.ign.com/videogame-villains/ Again, you don't have to do an evil character, it's just the theme, and Steampunk villains are always welcome!

 The League offers you the opportunity to prepare and refine your costumes for our Annual Invasion of Nova Albion by starting early in March to prep for the expected Villain domination of the event that takes place in San Jose this April.

 What would a Proper Villain where in space Steampunk Style? Think Jules Vernes 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and apply it to your Steampunk Space Traveler outfit. Remember to include your finest rayguns; if you require it, breathing apparatus; perhaps some kind of communication device, some sort of ambulatory device (steam powered jet pack.)

 We want our group to be ready so we'll start in March and work to refine our costumes. We'll also plan to have a table at Nova Albion and Clockwork Alchemy in May. We shall invade both events in style.

3rd Anniversary of The League of Proper Villains ~ Annual Pool Party - Castaway Bay

This will be an RSVP only event.

After months of plundering at sea, your ship is laden with the spoils of your conquests, when a huge storm overwhelms your heavy ship, which takes on water and crashes into the rocks of a forgotten island. While your gold has sunk to the bottom of the sea, your supplies of rum and food have washed up to the shore!
You and your crew of Villains may be stranded on an island in the Caribbean, but with friends, food and drink how bad can it be? And the bottom of the lagoon is strewn with gold coins and jewels if you’re brave enough to dive to its depths to retrieve them. Come party like a pirate on Castaway Bay!
Jack "Blackheart" Sparrow invites you to this island filled with tattered pirates and all sorts of mad scientists and adventurers. All have washed up to the shore of the island to beat the summer heat, tell their twisted tales, and share in an afternoon potluck.
This is the height of summer and you may want to use the pool or just dangle your feet in the water so bring a seaworthy swim piece if ye be so inclined…. The costume theme is castaway pirate. It’s like regular pirate wear only tattered (much cooler that way!). Other costume ideas are mermaids, sea creatures, undead pirates, and as usual, any sort of Steampunk villain wear is great. You may arrive on the island anytime after 3 PM. We will plan the meal for 6 PM and you may stay on into the evening or until the last attendee is devoured by the Kraken. A grill is available - hot dogs and chicken/turkey dogs will be provided, please bring anything else you’d like to grill and something to share. Please bring drinks also –we’ll provide water and sodas and a bottle o’rum. Instructions on how to navigate to Castaway Bay will be sent to all who RSVP. The general location is near Madison and I-80 in Sacramento.

Villains Gold Rush Days Invasion, Pre Party - Friday Night Bar Crawl ~ Saloon Girls & Wild West Men

  Hello Darlings, Rose Teathyme here,

 Once again the Villains have decided to crash a very popular annual event -- Old Sacramento Gold Rush Days.

 The official site for Gold Rush Days does not have the specifics for the 2013 event listed yet, but let's pre-plan our invasion and crash the event in style.

 Tradition holds that Old Sac Bars will host the Gold Rush Days Beer Crawl Friday Night August 30th to begin the festivities. Our mission: encounter the local mundanes and convert them to our Villainy Ranks. Let us impress them with our Friday night theme of Saloon Girls & Wild West Men.

 The Villains will begin our crawl at The Other Office for food and our first beer, and proceed on the crawl from there.

 Official details TBA. To be posted as soon Old Sac Bars updates their event calendar.

 Check out last year's 2012 Official information about the crawl:

 "Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento takes place every Labor Day weekend. It kicks off this year on Friday August 31st. The Gold Rush Beer Crawl takes place that Friday night starting at 6pm.

 The Gold Rush Days Beer Crawl is in its 2nd year and is a great after work get together, friend get together, or just a simple fun night out.

 Old Sacramento has 15 restaurants / bars to visit as well as some great retail establishments. If you plan on attending the beer crawl don’t forget to dress the part. Gold Miners, Saloon Girls, and Gunfighters seem to get the best service that weekend. Of course you do not have to dress the part so plain night out clothing is fine. But whatever you wear be ready for some fun with all that Old Sacramento has to offer.

 For just $10.00 you will visit 8 great establishments in no particular order and get one 6-9 oz craft beer at each for the low price of just $10.00. The fun starts at 6pm and goes till midnight, and when that last beer is poured at midnight the party will continue until closing time.

 Details, venues, beers are subject to change and you should sign up for updates at OldSacramentoBars.com

 You should know that last year’s Gold Rush Days Beer Crawl event SOLD OUT. 1200 Tickets - Gone By 7pm.

 We strongly suggest you purchase tickets in advance via eventbrite or at one of the venues.

 The Gold Rush Beer Crawl is strictly for the 21 and over. You must have valid ID, and agree to the terms of this event to participate.

 This is Old Sacramento’s 13th Gold Rush Days weekend. More than 200 tons of dirt will pave the streets of Old Sacramento as this annual festival “turns back the clock,” transforming Sacramento’s historic district into a scene straight out of the 1850s.

 Gold Rush Days Features Dancers, Street Dramas, Wagon Rides, Gold Panning, Period Artifacts, Storytelling, Craft Making, Embarcadero Tent City, Period Musicians, Horse-Drawn Carriages & much more!

 It is an all weekend event, and we strongly suggest you check into a local hotel and make a weekend of it. Old Sacramento has 3 very close by.

 Live Music can be found during and after the event at both River City Saloon and Laughs Unlimited."


  August 30 at 6:00pm until September 1 at 5:00pm

The League of Proper Villains 3rd Annual Invasion of Old Sacramento Gold Rush Days

This is Rose Teathyme,

 Once again the Villains have decided to crash a very popular annual event -- Old Sacramento Gold Rush Days. We are posting this event early to give you time to prepare for a massive invasion. We will be attending both Friday night festivities and Saturday afternoon.

 Our goal is to give some of our out of town members a chance to visit us in Sacramento.

 Let us discuss scheduling a group Underground Tour Saturday.

 At this event, we will be amongst period-costumed individuals. To set us apart, we will have to wear our Steampunk Finest. Bring any, and all, gadgets and ray guns. Think 'Wild Wild West' meets the Gold Rush.

 We'll invade several locations as a group and do photo shoots. We'll use our regular hideout - The Other Office, as our base of so you will not be lost in the crowd. This allows us a cool place to eat and drink during the festivities of the Saturday afternoon portion of our event. Let's take Gold Rush Days by storm!

 Schedule is subject to change. Please set the weekend aside. Updates to come. We will let you know about specifics when Gold Rush Days website releases details.

 Cheers! Rose

Villains ~ Día de los Muertos ~ 4th Annual Villains Apocalypse & Vampire Ball Invasion

Dear Villains,  We have exciting news. Our 4th Annual Villain Apocalypse is being combined with our 4th annual Invasion of Shannon McCabe's Vampire Ball. This gives us the chance to go all out for our seasons festivities. Think of some of the very special members who joined us after meeting the League at the ball last year.

 The League has personally been invited by Madame (Shannon McCabe) Macabre to participate at the ball this year. You should have as many opportunities to share your terrifying selves with the masses out there, perhaps collect a few more minions to our cause!

 This is a 21 and up only invasion.

 The Ball's theme is "Dark Shadows," but we ask that you be prepared to invade with our own theme, Villains ~ Día de los Muertos. Make it Steamy and Deadly, for what is an Apocalypse without some Villains behind the scenes.

 More information to come but mark your calendars and go all out to impress the locals with you Steamiest Deadly Style.

 I will be posting a photo album of step by step Stylized Skull Make-up instructions along with a link to a pintrest album as we get closer to the event.

 For guests that would like to attend that are not in the greater Sacramento area, please post on the event page. I would like to see local Villains take the responsibility of hosting non local members for events of this scale to give them greater opportunities to attend our events and minimize the costs of attending.

 Official event info to be updated as we receive it:

Villains Secret Meeting ~ Pilgrims Vs Indians, Not Politically Correct Holiday Dinner & Monster Mini Golf  

My Dearest Villains,

 I caution you this is not for the faint of heart; but who ever imagined we gave a fig for how strange an event like this might be.

 I think it is high time to stir the pot, have a little Putt Putt of Doom, enjoy our company, have a nice nosh, and be thankful we are having another fun year of great company and good conversation.

 Please join us for this magnificent sporting event followed by dinner next door at the Old Spaghetti Factory.

 You are charged to play Monster Mini Golf, dressed in your finest Pilgrims or Indians attire. This will be our themed event of the month.

 Approximately every 2nd Wednesday of the Month, The League of Proper Villains will be holding a "Secret Meeting" at ...various pubs and restaurants in the greater Sacramento Area. This is the Villains chance to meet in a casual setting, enjoy each other’s company, dress in Steamy Fashion or not depending on what you feel like.

 Suggestions of pubs and restaurants are welcome. Help us find great local places that have good happy hour food and drink menus.

Villains Annual Siege of the Great Dickens Fair

Greetings My Villainous Darlings!

 This is Penelope Dreadfulle Reporting from an Undisclosed Location. Since its creation at the hands of the lovely and devious Ms. Rose Teathyme, I have made great use of the Through Time Traveler's Coat (and my time traveler's pocket watch). Along with the Dr. Blackheart's research on the Physician's Miraculous time traveling Potting Shed, I have a cunning plan. What better way for villains to prove they are in control of time than by producing a news article showing that we've already done it! And so, I lay before you, the plan to lay Siege to Dickens London.

 The time portal to Dickens' London has been cleverly disguised as a Faire (the Dickens Faire, no less...the Doctor is clever is he not??) to be held at the Cow Palace in the wilds of Daily City, California, and will be open on four weekends from November 29 through December 22, 2013. Our ultimate goal is to have the League represented at all five weekends of the faire (We are proper villains after all...it's not a proper Siege if we don't hit all four weekends!!!)

 So gather your villainous teams and choose wisely. Your mission is go through the portal to Dickens' London in your steampunkiest and villainous finest and stage a photograph with your group somewhere in the faire. Interact with the denizens of the dock lands, convince Scrooge that he really doesn't need to listen to those ghosts. Sample the wares of the corset shop. Have a good romp at Fezziwig's or a drop of liquid gold at Mad Sal's and in general have a wonderful time, but don't forget to take your photographic devices so that we may publish our Siege of all five weekends in the Blackfriars Courant (along with your nefarious adventures of course). Publish your photos on facebook when you return through the portal.

 For information on the entrance to the portal (including ticket prices...alas, the good doctor was not able to use the 'Interocitor' to get us in free...) please investigate the following link: http://dickensfair.com/
